Chelsea striker Torres: Dalglish tactics surprised us

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres admits Kenny Dalglish surprised them with his tactics yesterday. Liverpool only played with three at the back, despite Torres lining up alongside Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba in attack.

"It was very difficult, Liverpool played a good game, with three at the back," Torres told Chelsea TV.

"We were not expecting that and maybe they took advantage of that.

"I think the fair result was the draw, it was unfair to lose that game, but now we are looking forwards to the next game and will keep fighting until the end.

"There are a lot of points still to play (for)."

Torres preferred to look on the positive welcome he received from the Stamford Bridge faithful.

"Obviously everyone wants to win, especially if it is their first game at home, but I will still have very good memories about my reception here and want to thank all of the Chelsea fans for that nice reception," he said.

"The result was not the best, but we have to keep going and fighting until the end."
